Stripes of mesh-like mohair are paired with seemingly-solid sections of stockinette merino. These visual and tactile contrasts are separated by an explosion of sparkle. This design evokes thoughts of the universe, the big bang, and empty space. If you can’t wrap physics and astronomy around your head, at least you can wrap this cowl around your neck.
